The weekend of July 25 - 28, 2014, NAPW's Director of Legal Advocacy, Sara Ainsworth, and Research & Program Associate, Laura Huss, attended and spoke at the "Standing Our Ground: Raising Our Voices against Reproductive Oppression and Violence against Women" conference and rally in Jacksonville, Florida. Hosted by SisterSong and the Free Marissa Now Campaign, this weekend included a Reproductive Justice 101 training, a Reproductive Justice Institute, and a direct action march. The march to the Duval County Unified Courthouse was an effort to stand in solidarity with Marissa Alexander and in opposition to the reproductive injustices that this case and legislation has made public.
